"Welcome! If you need a dedicated & patient tutor who is passionate about helping students, try me! I've spent 30+ yrs. successfully teaching/tutoring. I go the extra mile to help students develop confidence & achieve their goals.

I have a B.A. in English from UCLA, & I've published in local magazines. I have a permanent Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential, & I've taught in 4 schools in the Los Angeles area. I've taught/tutored every grade from K-7. My experience includes teaching struggling students as well as gifted & talented. I've received PTA teaching awards twice in my classroom tenure. Now, I enjoy tutoring on a part-time basis. I'm effective at tutoring reading, mathematics, phonics, reading comprehension, writing (including creative), spelling, punctuation, vocabulary, & grammar & can also help with testing, homework, & study skills. I ranked in the top 10% of Wyzant tutors for 2019 (1/14/20).

I'm not limited to teaching (K-6). My credential is K-9. I teach reading, writing, & English for grades 7, 8, 9. I've scored in the top 10% of test takers & can assist you with test preparation in SAT Reading & Writing, ACT English, ACT Reading, COGAT for Gr 1-3, & Lower Level ISEE. I can also help review & polish rough drafts.

Usually, I begin by assessing your skills (or your child's). I use the results to custom-tailor lessons! I utilize multiple teaching modalities, provide feedback reports & assessments, & adjust our lessons accordingly. I'm well-prepared, punctual, & have a sense of humor. I try to cultivate a great tutor/student relationship.

I offer the option of private lessons in a study room at the Santa Monica Library, where I grant a $5/hr discount. Ask about my discount for more than 2 lessons/wk! In addition to in-person lessons & home school, I tutor online for grades 1-7 (6 yrs). When not tutoring, I enjoy yoga, my 2 dogs, walking with adventure groups, reading many genres, & all art forms.

I believe we all bring our unique talents to the table. I'm eager to help you use" less...
